French Estates: GBD Sablee Standard Sandblasted Rhodesian (9438) (pre-1980)
Product Number: 004-003-4573
This French-made GBD is a stout-bodied Bullmoose-esque Rhodesian and forgoes the shape's conventional beadlines in favor of a subtle ridgeline just below the beveled rim. It wears a low-profile tanblast finish, further accentuating the piece's old school aesthetic. Condition is fair, as there is some rim darkening, mild chamber carbonizing, charring around the airway and the stem has some minor tooth marks and was over buffed.- Jeffery Sitts
